Chicken and Bacon Crispy Pancakes

I made these for tea last night and they were absolutely delicious!  Just 1 point each on No Count!

  

Ingredients (makes 4):

  • 100g oats, blitzed in food processor
  • 4 eggs
  • 650ml skimmed milk
  • 2 hot, cooked chicken breasts, chopped into small pieces
  • 4 bacon medallions
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 6 mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 flat tbsp plain flour (4 points)
  • a handful of parsley, chopped
  • a slice of Warburtons medium wholemeal bread, blitzed into breadcrumbs

Method:

  1. Make the pancakes first.
  2. Whisk 3 of the eggs and 300ml of the milk together and pour into the oats.
  3. Whisk all the mixture together.
  4. Spray Frylight into a frying pan and pour in some of the mixture to cover the bottom of the pan.
  5. Turn once while cooking (it can take a while to get the hang of this).
  6. As you make each pancake, leave it on a plate to cool.
  7. Now for the filling: spray a wok/deep frying pan with Frylight and cook the onion for 5 mins.
  8. Add the mushrooms and bacon medallions and cook until the bacon is cooked.
  9. Stir in the flour and then pour in the remaining 350ml milk, a little at a time. Keep stirring in order to make a smooth sauce.
  10. Add the parsley and chicken, season well and allow this to simmer for a couple of minutes.
  11. Take off the heat and allow to cool down a bit.
  12. Meanwhile, whisk the remaining egg and brush round the outside of each pancake.
  13. Divide the chicken and bacon mixture between the pancakes.
  14. Fold the pancakes over and press the edges to seal.
  15. Brush the top of each pancake with the remaining egg mixture and sprinkle the breadcrumbs over the top.
  16. Bake in the oven at 180C for 20 minutes.

 

Served here with new potatoes and baked beans, although it didn’t need the potatoes – it was filling enough without them!

  1. Hi Helen, Going back on to nc as from tomorrow 7/6 and just scrolling through and making notes of recipes to try. This might seem a little thing but did you dice the bacon medallions or keep them whole. Regards Ann xxx

    1. Hi Ann, I diced the bacon medallions for this recipe – it’s a very tasty one too:-) Good luck with going back to NC – you always do so well with it. Helen xxxxx

    1. Hi Elizabeth, yes you could but just keep an eye on them in the oven as they might not need the full 20 minutes. Helen xxx

    1. What a lovely thing to say Sal. Thank you so much, I hope you enjoy all the recipes and wish you all the best on your weight loss journey. Helen xxx

    1. Hi Debbie, they are 1 point each on No Count – because of the flour I’ve used to thicken the sauce. Enjoy them! Helen xxx
